A video of a doctor removing a 5-inch worm from a man’s eye is going viral. Doctors believe that the man was bitten by a mosquito who passed on the wuchereria bancrofti, a type of roundworm. Doctor’s worked to frantically remove the worm before it damaged the man’s eyesight.
This kind of parasitic worm is passed on by mosquitoes. 😱 https://t.co/Ub5jn2VT75
